The Trading Show Chicago: May 18-19

Testimony from an IU student who attended last year’s event:

The event is at the Navy Pier in Chicago and it’s called The Trading Show Chicago  .

I had attended last year and it’s a perfect opportunity for upperclassmen to network with professionals on Wall Street (who work on the quantitative side of things, from high frequency trading, algorithmic trading, data analysis, or risk management) and listen in on a varied topic of panel discussions. I had attended alone but ran into a few groups of students who came from the University of Chicago and Northwestern, many of whom were math majors like myself. The panels throughout the 2 days go on constantly and they are really interesting to get a gauge of what a job on wall street is like and the technical detailed topics as well.

For students the passes are free so long as the student applies on the website. The passes are usually very expensive being that they include all access to panel discussions and round table discussions. If you know anyone interested in something like this and is serious about networking and learning more about math on Wall Street, this would be a perfect opportunity for them. I will most likely be going again because the information and networking here is very strong.
